Associated Press logo Associated Press 12/02/2017

Bangladesh were 3-103 in their second-innings at stumps on day four of the one-off Test against India in Hyderabad on Sunday.

The tourists, chasing an improbable 459-run target, need another 356 runs for victory.

Bangladesh were bowled out for 388 in their first innings, prompting India to declare at 4-159 in their second innings to set up the chase.

At stumps, Shakib Al Hasan was unbeaten on 21 runs, while Mahmudullah was unbeaten on nine.

Post tea, Bangladesh made a poor start as Tamim Iqbal (three) was dismissed off Ravichandran Ashwin (2-34) in the sixth over. India called for a DRS review, which showed the batsman got an inside-edge onto his pad before he was caught at gully.

With his successes on Sunday, The 30-year-old Ashwin became the fastest cricketer to take 250 wickets in Tests.

Soumya Sarkar (42) and Mominul Haque (27) then put on 60 runs for the second wicket. Sarkar survived a caught behind shout off Ashwin via DRS review.

Ravindra Jadeja (1-27) removed Sarkar, caught at slip in the 22nd over, and then Ashwin made it a quick double blow three overs later, with Haque caught at slip as well.

Shakib too survived a caught behind appeal via DRS, and later his 28-run partnership with Mahmudullah pushed Bangladesh past 100 in the 32nd over.
